I cannot begin to express how badly I need new pots and pans. I don’t even mean that I need a fancy set of berndes cookware or anything. Just a decent set of pans. All of mine are the ones that come in those “Back To College”, “First Apartment” kits you always see out around this time of year. Since I haven’t been back to college in a few years, they’re getting a bit old, and trust me when I tell you that these pans were definitely not created for long-term use. The pans are so bad that I burned my dinner 3 nights ago, and I’m *still* trying to soak off the burnt food. I think it permanently fused with the crappy material on the bottom of the pan! I might just cook more if I had decent pans (or a decent kitchen)!
